Community Pentecostal Center would like for you to join them for their 2nd annual Trail Run 5k. "JJ5k"
This year's race will be for a $2,000 scholarship in memory of Jerrica Jade Helderman. We are calling the race "JJ5k". The JJ stands for Jerrica Jade. This scholarship will go to a senior dance team member at East Gaston High School. Jerrica graduated from East Gaston in 1998 and was a member of the Dance Team at EG. (It was her funeral that was being held at Common Ground during last year's race). We have made a 20 year commitment to continue this scholarship each year. This race will be the main fundraiser for it.
